Shoal Bay Bach House

I know it’s technically winter here but Los Angeles doesn’t care and thinks it should be in the mid-70’s, which makes me yearn for summer, and staying in the house above. The residence is called Shoal Bay Bach and is located in Shoal Bay, New Zealand, a remote area on the east coast of Hawkes Bay. It was built by Parsonon Architects and was made to be a place where you can totally relax and not worry about tracking sand through the house.

The house is made up of two pavilions, a main living/dining area and a separate area for the bedrooms. The main living space is made up of treated plywood which gives the space a warm and inviting feeling and the pitched roof makes it looks huge. Doesn’t this just look like the perfect summer house?
